on april 18th, kathleen sebelius testified here in this room the federal hub is on time and on track. we are on track. but we know the secretary's testimony didn't match what was happening behind the scenes. two weeks before testifying before this committee, she was present at a meeting when significant threats and risks were expressed in launching the site on october 1st. they repeated claims this is well and on track until the mess than launched on october 1st. after the launch, the volume was the culprit when they knew oth r otherwi otherwise. this is about whether the public people can trust with websites. one important question is will they enroll by january 1. and security is another issue. how can they trust a website where it was more important to get it out than end-to-end testing. deputy chao is here to answer the questions. i do understand you are a career employee and been at cms for years and the last few months have not been easy. last march, you were one of the first to publically offer a glimpse of the true situation when you said let's make sure it isn't a third world ex

services secretary kathleen sebelius asking whether all standards were met prior to the launch of healthcare.gov, the web site to sign up for obamacare. we've asked secretary sebelius to provide answers and information to a series of questions dealing what level of security and privacy measures were undertaken prior to the launch of the web site to safeguard the privacy of those americans signing up for coverage through healthcare.gov. this is a serious concern that must be addressed. additionally, because of the law, some businesses are cutting back on employees and on hours making it harder for americans to find full-time jobs. and those who do hold onto their full-time jobs could lose their employer-sponsored private insurance and are instead being dumped into the exchange or into a failing medicaid system. these are just some of the unfortunate realities we are facing with the implementation of obamacare. as these stories continue to pour in, i urge all my colleagues on both sides of the aisle along with the president to carefully listen to the american people, to the ameri

to ask kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, about the navigators this morning, and she admitted that there is no background check done of the navigators, even though they will collect some of the most sensitive personal information that you can have, including things like your social security that can be then used to hack into your accounts. your health information, whether it is mental or physical, which is among the most sensitive personal information each of us have. well, she admitted since they don't do any background check, she couldn't guarantee that a convicted felon couldn't be a navigator. she said that was possible. i think something that really grabbed a lot of people's attention because they just naturally assumed that this sort of thing had been taken care of. and that three tphafs years leading -- three and a half years leading to the rollout of obamacare. we know the more people who find out about this law, i liken it to an onion. with each layer of the onion you peel back, it keeps getting worse and worse and worse. the law is proving to be eve
